You can get all the paints from wal-mart or a paint store. Buy Flat black paint, high glass enamel and high grit (almost smooth) sand paper. Start off by sanding it untill it looks like the pic below, then spray like 3 coats of primer, 3 coats of black paint, and top it off with 4 light coats of gloss. Use alchol to clean the dust off after sanding with a towel.
